“I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.” –Terry Tempest Williams
I mentioned The Solace of Open Spaces and when I was looking for quotes I was then reminded of Williams memoir of the women in her family: Refuge. Praying to the birds makes much more sense to me than praying to an invisible entity. The birds answer back immediately, too.
